CalPERS negotiated its lowest overall health premium increase in 21 years, at an average 1.16 percent. Several health plans will see an average premium decrease in 2019, representing out-of-pocket savings for many CalPERS members. Overall rates for seven HMO plans will be less than the 2018 rates. About 800,000 CalPERS HMO Basic members (excluding those in association plans) are expected to see their premiums decline in 2019, if they remain with their current plans.
